The cooling breath of a tradewind breeze...

Hibiscus flower in the moonlight...

The golden light of the setting tropical sun...

The Charlie Chan Family Home

The cooling caress of a tradewind breeze, carrying with it the subtle perfume of plumeria, gently sways the palms and rustles the glistening leaves of the algaroba trees that shade the house nestled on the upper slope of Punchbowl Hill above the bustling tropical city of Honolulu.  This house, now a virtual  museum, has been the ancestral home to the Chan family for decades.  So, please dear visitor, accept an unworthy yet heartfelt welcome to you, our honored guest!

Each room of this venerable old home will hopefully offer an opportunity to learn a few new facts about the life and work of illustrious detective and family patriarch Charlie Chan.

Please feel free to wander through our small museum by using the links provided at the top of this and all of our pages, or, for more detailed information, you may prefer to begin your tour by first visiting our Directory.

OUR WEEKLY CHAT/FILM VIEWING (Charlie Chan Film Tour 2022):

Monday, November 28: The Golden Eye

Please consider accepting this humbly offered invitation to join with us as for our Charlie Chan Family Chats each week on our 2022 tour through the Charlie Chan film series!  Below are our offerings for this month...

Our features for the month of NOVEMBER:
Monday, November 7: Docks of New Orleans
Monday, November 14: Mr. Wong, Detective
Monday, November 21: The Shanghai Chest
Monday, November 28: The Golden Eye 

Each Monday evening we watch a feature together through the magic of synchronized personal video devices or from online versions via YouTube,, etc.!  Our evenings casually begin at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time with arrivals and greetings.  We can carry on an opening dialogue and, at times, we may enjoy an "extra" presentation together.  Then, at precisely 8:15, we start our synchronized playing of our personal or online copies of our feature for that night, allowing us to share our insights, trivia, and FUN!

If you do not have access to a copy of our featured presentation (please note: a good number of Charlie Chan movies, and others, are available via the Internet at such sites as YouTube, dailymotion, and retrovisionmedia), please join with us anyway!  Our conversation wanders from the picture at hand to most any subject relating to Charlie Chan, and you will be included in all of the fun!  Need it be said that ALL are most welcome, especially "first-timers"?

So, we hope to see you in our Chat Room this Monday evening, as there is always a chair awaiting you, our honored guest...
